For everyone else, there's another chance to win more stuff in my March Fairy Tale Giveaway. Check it out for details.

Red and the Wolf, my fairy tale fantasy romance, is out today!

To celebrate and encourage you dear readers to help me spread the word, I’m hosting a Release Week Giveaway.

They said Little Red Riding Hood lived happily ever after. They lied.

Six years after the attack at her grandmother’s cottage, Blanchette still wilts at the sound of a wolf’s howl. The scent of pine rising from the Black Forest surrounding her home is a constant reminder of the beast’s assult and the injury it left on her finger. After years spent hiding away, Blanchette’s world tilts when she wakes--naked and without memory of the previous night--in the forest, instead of behind the safety of her closed shutters.

Since rescuing Blanchette and her grandmother, huntsman Heinrich has befriended her family by day, and keeps watch as a powerful wolf over his territory by night. Sinister otherworldly creatures constantly threaten his domain and the human village he protects.

When the emperor sends a hunter to investigate the attack and slay any inhuman beings, Heinrich must tread carefully and protect not only himself, but his newly-discovered mate, who prowls the moonlit nights alongside him. He must also determine who is responsible for a string of murdered villagers, proving he can control his lupine nature and offer protection to the village, rather than danger.

The prizes:
   A free e-copy of Red and the Wolf in your choice of epub, mobi, or pdf.
   An Annette Funicello Collectable Bear Co. Little Red Riding Hood Bear. (Normally lists online for $105, however, if you win this week’s drawing, you get this adorable bear free.)

Time and date of giveaway:
This giveaway lasts from Monday, March 4, 2013, 12:00 AM Central Standard Time to Sunday, March 10, 2013, 11:59 PM Central Standard Time. Winners will be announced on Monday, March 11, 2013.

   There is no limit to the number of points you can acquire.
   Each point equals an additional time you are put in the drawing. Naturally, the more points you have, the more likely you are to win one of these prizes.
   Winners will be announced on this blog on Monday, March 11, 2013. You have one week to contact me and claim your prize. If I have not heard from you by Monday, March 18, 2013, you will forfeit the prize, and I will draw a new winner.  Also, only one prize per person should you be so lucky.
   Each prize will have a separate drawing.
   Have fun!
